It’s cold – bitterly freezing cold. All the more reason to sleep in and stay snuggly warm in your bed this weekend, right?
Well…. allow me to lure you out of your warm hiding place with the promise of Glasgow’s best breakfasts.
You weekend late risers fret not because Delizique Cafezique offers an all-day breakfast menu every day until 5pm. So whether you’re after the big fry up (£8.95) or eggs in a variety of enticing ways, you can find it in this laid-back welcoming eatery.
Always a good sign – the smell of something wonderful fills the air and everything is the freshest of fresh because the cakes, breads and other baked goodies are all made locally – in fact next door. In warmer weather this West End treasure’s outside seating is an absolute must.
The quirky and cosy Two Figs is great spot for meeting up with friends the- morning-after-the-night-before to refuel while nursing sore heads or wounded egos. The figs’ weekend brunch runs from 10am – 5pm and here it’s totally ok to have curry for breakfast.
So if you’re looking for something spicy, look no further – their Thali breakfast is a flavourful aubergine, cauliflower, masala potato and flatbread mash up (£6.95). A true taste sensation and a nice change from the basic bacon and eggs, though they are also on offer.
Popular for dinner and late night fun and frolic, the Corinthian may still have yet to be discovered as a fantastic breakfast spot. Or possibly its 8am– noon breakfast is too early for most on the weekends.
But if you can get yourself out of bed and into the Merchant City, you’re guaranteed a seat in splendid surroundings. Their breakfast of champions will set you up for the day – and possibly leave you wanting very little for dinner.
Corinthian’s fantastic selection makes facing the cold and braving an earlish morning bearable. Once there my hardest decision is choosing between griddle pancakes (£4.95) or toasted soda bread with smoked salmon and fluffy scrambled eggs (£5.75). Even if you’re not a veggie, it’s hard not to be tempted by the hearty full veggie breakfast that includes vegetarian sausage, fruit pudding, vegetarian haggis, hash brown, tomato, mushroom and your choice of egg (£6.95). This is exactly what I go for.
Adding to my delight is the almost-too-exquisite-to-eat macaroons served on the side of every cuppa.
Outta bed lazy bones – breakfast calls
So this weekend get yourself outta that bed because these places will make you believe that breakfast is not only the most important meal of the day – but the most delicious.
